VUDU starts 3D stream next week!

Home Theater Setup for Dummies

Lucky VUDU subscribers will be able to watch 3D movies starting next week. They should be worry about increasing of their Internet speed. Because the 3D content will require the same amount of the bandwidth as the 2D streams. Except 3D compatible TV consumers will need supported devices such Blu-ray players or STBs. Currently VUDU supports a few models but it’ll increase them in the future. Good to see PS3, Boxee Box by D-Link and Iomega TV with Boxee in the supported devices list.

Watch stream from VDR on the Popcorn Hour


Good news for all how like Popcorn Hour and want to watch TV on it. Using the latest version of VDR plugin streamdev-server the dream comes true :). The previous version was needed a patch to bring the stream in the format understandable for the networked media tank.

You can stream to Popcorn Hour not only standard definition signal but HD as well (you should have VDR with HD support). To switch channels and retrieve channel info and EPG can be used a simple web interface – vdr-ui. It doesn’t offer a full set of streamdev-client features but at least makes process of managing of the stream much easily. Hope it’ll be extended soon.

Kaleidescape, a proprietary multi-room audio/video system, has announced a release of its OS – KEAOS. New features of the version 3.5 include the ability to automatically synchronize music from a Kaleidescape System to iTunes on a PC, an iPod or other digital music player, new classical music interface that lets users personalize their classical music listening experience, greater data safety in the event of disk drive failure, and new options for sharing personalized movie scripts and favorite scenes with other Kaleidescape users.

Kaleidescape system may contain 1U or 3U Server, Movie Player 2, Music Player and Speed Reader to import large numbers of DVDs and CDs. It looks attractive but I didn’t any information about the price except that:

As the old sayings go, you get what you pay for, and quality is remembered long after price is forgotten.

Agree but it’d be nice to know how much is each main component.
